If you possess an accountant’s mindset, you’ll understand how vital it is to make sure the numbers stack up. 

You may also be aware that it’s not everyone’s cup of tea to have the same mindset. Accountancy has a bit of a reputation for being a ‘bean counting’ profession, overlooking its critical role in the functioning of a successful business.

That’s why there is an entire industry dedicated to taking care of the accounts of companies who may operate at a level where it’s significantly cheaper to outsource, rather than having their own specialist…or, simply, they just don’t want to manage the process themselves and would have a forensic eye over proceedings.

Having gained many years of experience in the industry, you may feel it’s your turn to share your accounting expertise with fellow business professionals. 

Provided you tick the right boxes, this could well be the start of an exciting new career journey, as accounting companies in Dubai have potential. Big potential. 

Key factors to keep in mind before starting an accountancy firm in Dubai

As for ticking the right boxes, you’ll be getting off to a great start if you have experience in:

  • Bookkeeping
  • Tax
  • Business Advisory
  • Audit Firm
  • Forensic Accounting

This is because these are some of the skills in greatest demand from an accountancy firm in Dubai.
